Designing an Open House to Wellness
Apr 11, 2012 05:31AM
Embarking on a new partnership, Natural Awakenings Magazine and Stonehenge Properties are on the path to creating a more holistic approach to living in Manhattan by bridging the gap between Stonehenge residents and the communities where they live. Awareness, teamwork and social responsibility were among some of the key points discussed at this month's Wellness Summit held at The Olivia, one of Stonehenge's luxury rental properties overlooking trendy Chelsea and Hell’s Kitchen.
Armed with a common goal in mind – building healthier communities together, Natural Awakenings Magazine and Stonehenge want to share that message with a larger audience. "It's all about renovation, renewal, restoring, revitalizing … let's get back to what's happening in our neighborhoods," Stonehenge Creative Director Michael Stern told a group of wellness industry leaders attending the morning event. Whole Foods Market provided a bountiful display of fresh fruits and other breakfast items.
"I think this is a new paradigm. It really hasn't been done before," Stern said. "We need to share with people what your mission is, we need to share this amazing community of people in Manhattan who are the caretakers of human beings," he told Wellness Summit attendees. Stonehenge is taking steps to build better communities by giving back to local neighborhoods where its properties are located, company representatives explained.
